I was at the cottage on Horseshoe Island on Stony Lake Friday afternoon. I went to look at a crop of Ox-eye Daisies and found, to my delight, several tiny native bees! Before the talk on native bees by Susan Chan at the Peterborough Field Naturalists, I would have overlooked these beautiful little creatures. I took some pictures at different times over the weekend. Also, a variety of other insects were enjoying the pollen and nectar on the daisies.   I am now in love with tiny bees!
